We’ve done some cool things before, but this is really cool. Here is a link to the article on Aetolia explaining the new farming system more.
If you’re playing from Mudlet you can install the graphic version of your farm by just typing in the command “get_farm_package” while running Mudlet. (Vadi rocks)
If you don’t like art in your MUD, that’s fine. We understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea in a text game. The economic game around farms is what really makes the new system fun anyways. Mining is coming next and will use a similar display, but the system will be different.
We’re working on a very smooth Nexus update that will display this better in our client as well. It should be out soon. You can find that at https://play.aetolia.com/
